I guess you'd have to make ironruby a known platform for Netbeans, perhaps
they only check for executable names that have ruby in them. you can try to
symlink (ntfslink i believe) ir.exe to ironruby.exe and see where that gets
you. (copying should also work)
I'm using Rubymine, very similar to netbeans but works with IronRuby.
